Parmesan Lemon Spinach

Adapted from American Heart Association Low-Salt Cookbook
I know the half and half isn’t in the approved foods list in my current training program I am doing but spinach is!!!! Parmesan cheese isn’t either (I am not getting off to a good start here on the nutritional side of my program) but oh who cares? This spinach is too delicious.
